Thrilled to share that our first session of +VC Office Hours
will be with +John Lilly
of Greylock on Thursday, May 10th, at 8:15am PST.
I couldn't be more happy with the choice of John as our inaugural guest. He's been a founder, a CEO, an investor, an advisor, a Professor... and is incredibly down-to-earth and lighthearted for someone who is so accomplished.
If you'd like to be on our panel for this session, please let us know in the comments below and I'll be in touch. And since this will be a Hangout on Air, it will be broadcast and archive so everyone can participate.
Looking forward to our chat next week!
